Take the ribbon from your hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Layin' soft upon my skin
Like the shadows on the wall

Come and lay down by my side
Till the early mornin' light
All I'm takin' is your time
Help me make it through the night

I don't care who's right or wrong
I don't try to understand
Let the devil take tomorrow
Lord tonight I need a friend

Yesterday is dead and gone
And tomorrow's out of sight
And it's sad to be alone

    General CommentIt was Kris Kristofferson who wrote 'Help me make it through the night' one of the most recorded songs, not Tom.T.Hall. Toms famous song is 'Old dogs and children and watermelon wine. Also, the title 'Help me make it through the night' comes from what Frank Sinatra once said, I have a whisky and a bible to help me make it through the night.
    The song is about sex, one night stand, and drugs and was never played on the radio until people like Elvis, Cash and later, Glandys Knight, her biggest hit.
